Labor Day weekend is summer’s last summer hurrah … are you making the most if it?

According to a WalletHub survey, 53% of us are heading out of town for Labor Day weekend. 36% of us are traveling by car and 14% of us are flying.

The most popular Labor Day 2022 destinations are :

  1. San Diego
  2. Chicago
  3. New Orleans
  4. Seattle
  5. New York

Be careful out there … Labor Day weekend is among the deadliest on the roads. According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Labor Day weekend is the second-deadliest holiday weekend when it comes to traffic fatalities. It’s surprising as most would probably think July 4th or Memorial Day would be deadlier. The holiday weekend with the most traffic fatalities is actually Thanksgiving. The deadliest hour to be on the roads this weekend is tonight from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. Drive carefully. 

A big weekend of BBQ-ing According to WalletHub, 61% of Americans plan to BBQ over Labor Day weekend. Time to get in the last of the 818 hot dogs eaten every second between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Looking for a theme for your Labor Day BBQ? Tell everyone to wear all white – from their tops to their shoes. Labor Day is supposed to be the last day you can wear white till next summer … so may as well celebrate that outdated notion.
